Bill O’Reilly Supports “American Citizen” Ellen Against Fundamentalist Mom Group In JCPenney Firestorm (Video)

Bill O'Reilly defends Ellen

Is ole’ Bill getting soft in his old age? Back in the day, the conservative Fox host would take up the cause with the fundamentalist Christian group One Million Moms (“Who Hate Everything” is usually left off their title) in their boycott of JCPenney for using Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson.

 

Instead, in an editorial in today’s New York Post (as well as a recent episode of his show) Bill O’Reilly defends Ms. DeGeneres, scolds the Moms, and even suggests that they set their sights on a non-gay pop culture icon more deserving of their scorn.

And today’s article in the Post, titled “A Gay Time at JCPenney”:

While I sympathize with folks not wanting to deal with homosexuality, the Moms are wrong, DeGeneres is an American citizen. She has committed no crime. If she wants to promote equality for gays or gay marriage, this is her constitutional right. She shouldn’t be dismissed from anything…
In my view, Kim Kardashian is a far worse role model than Ellen, and the Million Moms might want to check that out. Scores of media people are celebrated for bad behavior. If the Moms want to be consistent in their outrage about dubious behavior, they are going to be busy.

Yesterday on Ellen’s show, the host thanked Mr. O’Reilly for his support:

“Normally I try not to pay attention to my haters, but this time I’d like to talk about it because my haters are my motivators,” DeGeneres said at the opening of yesterday’s “Ellen.”

Aww, maybe soon we’ll see Papa Bill guest-hosting for Ellen, or at least dancing on her stage as a guest. Well, probably not, but it’s a sign of maturity that Mr. O’Reilly has taken on Ms. DeGeneres’ cause, as he has bigger things to worry about than lesbians. (Like that Muslim in the White House, for instance.)

    Mr Grant has no idea who Bill O’Reilly is. He has never watched his show, Im sure all he has ever seen are out of context sound bites.  Muslim in the white house really?  this is why I can not stand libs….especially lib writers. they are like dung beetles, they just keep rolling the same ball of crap around.

    It’s the fascist in the White House that conservatives(which Bill O’Reilly isn’t BTW) are worried about, not the “Muslim”.  I think Drew’s crotchless panties may be bunched.

    I do not understand why we continue to create a separate class of American’s known as “Homosexuals/Gays”.  How exactly did we get to a place in this Country where a person can gain class status because he gets an erection when he looks at another erection.  When did we decide that an individual can be treated as a protected class because he prefers a male bum hole to a female vagina?  I feel that Pro-Gay groups have done themselves a disservice by asking to be identified for the gender of the person they choose to have sex with.  (i.e. Gay Pride, “Mom, Dad, I’m Gay!”)  Does it really matter who you choose to bone? Who are you other than that?  No one needs to know that.  Moreover, what does that have to do with the person you are.  Every gay person I have ever known, however, identifies themselves as gay.  Why?   I think anti-gay groups have done themselves a disservice by seeking to separate themselves from another American because that person likes sex with a American of the same gender.  Who cares?!  In the end, its all about what turns you on in the bedroom.  It is so insignificant.   Gay folks, just a word of advice, if you truly believe that you are not equal in the eyes of the law, then, you may want to stop playing into the stero types.  Stop with all the prancing, fancy costumes, and effeminate behavior.  You say you like men and are attracted to men, then you act like stereo-typical women.  Lesbians, you say you like women, yet you dress like men.  Butch hair, flannel shirts ripped at the sleeves, etc.  Knock it off.  You want to be treated as the norm, then try to act the norm.  You create separation by acting in a way that is outside the norms of society; yet, argue that you should be treated normally.    I understand this does not apply to everyone; however, you cannot argue that there is not a large majority of gays/lesbians who look the stereotypical part.   I am not saying the anti-gays are correct in these stereotypes; however, if a large majority of you did not look different, it would be a whole lot easier to change peoples minds.  Just saying.

    Drew Grant is talking through his arse. He’s only “surprised” that O’Reilly would defend Ellen D because he has no idea about what O’Reilly actually thinks about anything.

    Except for what he reads in nutjob left-wing HATE sites.

    Leftists like Grant are the most intolerant, uninformed people in the world. But they do love their own sanctimonious mendacity.

    You have to wonder if Bill remembers his High School Biology. No one should condemn Ellen but to make her an Icon goes against nature. If the moms want to express their opinion, then they also have every right to do so.

    Drew writes a society gossip column on the internet. If you’re looking for deep analysis of conservative political thought here, you’re not going to find any.

    Glenn Beck defended Ellen as well.  His site is filled with hateful comments, angry that he defended Ellen.
